Family friendly and fantastic artistic fun or great date night with beautiful lighted carved pumpkin displays on a short walking trail, talented local musicians, food trucks and coffee house, games, storytelling, face painting, white squirrel scavenger hunt, and the Silvermont historic mansion open for tours. The new 2021 “White Squirrel Circus” display returns, as well as 18 other lighted pumpkin displays such as Butterfly Garden, Pirates Cove, Under the Sea, Witches Garden, Ghost Circle, Totem Garden, and more. A new 2022 exhibit has been developed by Friends of Silvermont’s Pumpkinteers that ties throughout many of the other exhibits- Syd, The Lost Little White Squirrel, searches for her family. Several photo-op sites will also be set up throughout the Pumpkin Fest Displays.
Fine gravel trail works well for strollers but does not meet ADA standards for wheelchairs. Pumpkin Fest is a Fundraiser for Friends of Silvermont to help maintain and improve the Silvermont Park and historic mansion.
